Current Fundraisers for KMS
The KMS PTO has partnered with online fundraising organization ShopWithScrip to bring you an easy new way to support KMS and complete some holiday shopping, all while staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
ShopWithScrip offers gift cards from over 750 major retailers that can be purchased online and sent electronically to the recipient of your choice. You get the full value of the gift card, and each retail brand gives a percentage of that purchase back to KMS. It’s a win-win!
Getting started is easy:
1) Enroll online at ShopWithScrip.com.
2) Enter our KMS enrollment code when prompted: 881A5C3D74144
3) Start shopping! Payments can be made using a credit or debit card (2.6% transaction fee) or by linking your bank account for instant transactions ($0.15/transaction).
4) E-Gift cards will be sent immediately to your recipient of choice!
5) Send physical gift cards (for a small shipping fee) by downloading the ShopWithScrip mobile app RaiseRight.
ShopWithScrip fundraising can be applied in a variety of scenarios. Give gift cards to teachers as gifts or to help support their classroom needs. Use gift cards when doing your own holiday food or gift shopping. Send e-gift cards as holiday gifts to friends and family. Have a kid outgrowing clothes at a rapid pace? Consider using a gift card for clothes shopping.
PTO funds are used year-round to help teachers purchase the supplies they need, support our efforts to brighten up the KMS campus via our Bright Spots initiative, supplement funds for athletics and other extracurricular organizations, and provide community engagement activities for our students.
Please feel free to share the link and KMS enrollment code with friends and family.
We hope you will join us in our continuing efforts to build our Scorpion Nest!
